Chris Brown Pays Ariel Castro’s Bail

May 10, 2013

eGhydDRjMTI=_o_chris-brown-angry-at-gma-interviewSinger Chris Brown paid Ariel Castro's bail today, saying the Cleveland kidnapper is a "misunderstood figure" who is being unfairly treated by the criminal justice system.

Castro was arraigned yesterday on charges of kidnapping and rape stemming from his abduction and decade-long captivity of three local women who escaped from his home earlier this week.

His bond was set at $8 million in an effort to ensure he remained locked up during his trial. Castro got some unexpected help today, however, when a lawyer for Brown arrived in Cleveland and put up the 10% deposit required for his release.

"I just wanted to help a brother out," says Brown, who is noted for his misogynistic life philosophy, "this Castro guy is a complicated figure, and not all he did was bad. I got cash to spare, so why not?

"So far these are just allegations. He hasn't been convicted of anything. And even if we assume he's guilty, these charges have been way overblown by the media."

Two Rebels

According to legal experts, Brown paying $800,000 in bail doesn't guarantee Castro's release. Prosecutors may charge Castro with additional crimes in hopes of increasing his bail and preventing that outcome.

"There's no way we're letting him out," says one source close to the prosecution, "No matter how much money Chris Brown puts up, we'll think of something."

But in an exclusive interview, Brown says keeping Castro behind bars indefinitely would be a mistake.

"No one has heard his side of the story," he explains. "He gave those three young ladies free food, clothing, and room and board for 10 years. That's like a $100,000 value each. You never hear the media talk about that.

"Look, I don't agree with everything he did. Some of these allegations are just terrible. But no one's talking about the possibility that this all could have been a setup.

"In my experience, you can't trust females. I don't care if it's your wifey or just some ho you meet at a club - women always be lying.  We don't know what really happened. We're just listening to what the media wants us to hear."

Indeed it is Brown's own history of negative media coverage which he claims drives his sympathy or Castro.

"I know what its like for the media to take one tiny little domestic dispute and blow it all out of proportion," he points out. "So I got your back Ariel. Don't let them females get you down brother."

Brown's attorney, Saul Goodman of Albuquerque, N.M., says he will also be henceforth representing Castro at Brown's expense.

"It's gonna be challenging," says Goodman, "but I'm used to dealing with some rough characters."

    FK CHRIS BROWN……………..

  • Tre

    This is straight fake. Just an article written to start drama. Its a made up story like the ones on Jerry Springer.

  • TheHumanTorch

    Saul Goodman!!!

  • Big Phil

    Just to let y’all know, this is fake, because the lawyer’s name is Saul Goodman. Anyone who’s watched Breaking Bad should know that Saul Goodman is the name of the criminal lawyer that represents Walter and Jesse in the third, fourth, and fifth season I believe. Also, the lawyer is from Albuquerque, New Mexico…the same city that Saul Goodman is from on the show. Sadly, my faith in humanity has suffered after reading this.

  • Amanda

    completely fake this article is!

  • Clevelandgirl

    I know this is 100% fake, but I wish it were true…justice would be instantly served on the streets….save the taxpayers the money for footing the attorney bill for this POS scumbag…

  • styxx

    People. He has a cash bond hello. He needs the full 8 mil in order to get out not 10 percent.

  • NOBODY

    Okay this article is definitely fake. You can tell by the voice the article is in. Also, nothing about it is posted on the Clevelabd news sites.

  • Cookie

    Ridiculous to think that Chris brown would risk being hated more then he is now!

  • http://www.facebook.com/annie.rivera.3532 Annie Rivera

    you sicken me he confessed to his crimes because he knws he was wrong abd you are just as much an animal than human being

  • CLEVELAND MAN !

    To point out the obvious …..Chris Brown is a brainless idiot ! Donate the money towards the victims and go hide under a rock . I realize misery loves company as Mr. Brown is lady beater himself but this boarders the idea of him
    Obtaining a frontal lobotomy!

  • firing backin cleveland

  • u ppl are fruitnuggets

    Dude until u hear it on the news… he wouldn’t do it… lies don’t believe everything u read… u ppl remind me of chickens.. just keep cluckin like crazy cuz this pops up… get real ppl

  • http://www.facebook.com/Littlecountrywoman Lori Carter

    This is just totally outrageous. Not only is he helping a possibly “really sick” person to get back on the streets where he can kidnap more young women, rape and brutalize them, but he is “categorizing” all women in one group. Just because he can’t keep his act together with his “women” doesn’t mean all women are liars. I’m surprised he hasn’t been charged with murder for all those miscarriages he caused them to have. Maybe Chris Brown has skeletons in his basement too and should be in there right along with him.

  • AlSween

    Fake page

  • svhmarcia

    What a fuckin loser Chris Brown is! That’s cause he’s on the same low level!

  • name

    Have you figured out that the daily currant is satire, fake, not real?

  • AlSween

    And “Currant” is spelled wrong lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/CJCobalt60 Chris Jackson

    Here’s the key clue this article is BS. “Brown’s attorney, Saul Goodman of Albuquerque, N.M., says he will also be henceforth representing Castro at Brown’s expense.” ” Better Call Sal!” Anybody know where this is from? If you do not, it’s from Breaking Bad on AMC. Sal Goodman is a FICTIONAL attorney on a TV SHOW. Excellent show btw.

  • john

    The daily Currant is a joke. You guys should be ashamed of yourself for making up this story. I live in Cleveland and this is not a joke to us. I hope someone ties you up in a basement. What pathetic excuses for people you are. Rotten Bastards.

  • dee

    Even though this is a fake article, I do think it is in rather poor taste at this current juncture. What if Amanda, Gina, or Michelle stumbles upon this (not saying they will, but you never know)? They might not think it’s as funny as it’s meant to be. While I do appreciate the stab at Chris Brown, I’m just not sure this was the best current event to satirize right now….

    go to snopes.. it is not real

    Women are the ones who think this is a real story bc they cant believe someone would lie on the internet for a joke. that’s just absurd, The Internet never lies – only women!

  • Samantha Taylor

    Very well said. I was coming on to express my exact sentiments, but you said it so well, that I will refrain.

  • troRx

    It’s satire, you dolt!

    It’s a far different animal than the garbage people ingest from daytime reality TV.

    Satire, among other things, creates standard candles for the obsurdity of things occurring at a macro social level. Used properly, it helps us calibrate how we react to these real situations.

  • troRx

    Satirical response to someone’s failure to recognize satire.

    That may qualify as performance art!

    This is great satire, DC… but ya’ll are giving too Chris Brown too much credit: “He gave those three young ladies free food, clothing, and room and board for 10 years. That’s like a $100,000 value each. You never hear the media talk about that.”

    Uh… I know this isn’t exactly what you would call eloquent… but have you SEEN him try to formulate a sentence before? This is more accurate: “Yo dat dawg he be hustlin for dos hos like erryday like damn yo, you know wat I’m sayin? He… yeah.. like dat homie… got those hos on dat free shiet… .. dat’s hella dough… ya dig? All you hos be hatin on a dawg yo.”

  • 4everAmerican

    I for one find this, the most disgusting “satire”! This pig held captive 3 women for over 10 years, raped and tortured them over and over and you think it’s ok to make some stupid “satire” article about it? There is NOTHING funny about this story and I find it horrible that this so called website thought it would be appropriate to make a joke out of it. Disgusting!!! There really is no hope for the human race anymore when people find it ok to make a joke about this regardless of who the “target” was in the story and when others find it acceptable.

  • hon_ard

    thats his money and his choices.. brown should look at the situation like what if that was his sister or mother being held captive over the years..

    Sad, when lack of something better to write about, they just generate a fictitious article… what about libel? Reporters/Journalist should be held accountable for slander and defamation of character. Just saying, what a wasted brain.

    Whoever wrote this article is a very insensitive person, those women went through something horrific and for you to think this would be funny is vey unsettling. You need to look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself what kind of human being are you.

  • Pita

    yes the story is fake but it’s not that far fetched. Chris Brown and Castro have a lot of similarities.

  • Terrie Ann Bailey

    Chris Brown is crazy anyway he hates women look how he treated his so of coarse he would go bail out this man the boy yeah I said boy has no brains at all.

  • Terrie Ann Bailey

    I dont know fake or not it sure sounded good and I wouldn’t put it past Chris Brown
